Coating Systems

Nuances, variety and variance require the use of different blacks. We generate more than 280 specialty carbon black grades using five manufacturing processes and after treatments.

Coatings demand color perception with multivariable requirements depending on industry, application and end-use of manufactured goods. Among the color perception of coatings, carbon black generates properties for both conductive- and non-conductive- coatings. Any paint pigmented with carbon black has enhanced UV-stability that prolongs the coating's lifetime.

Among many other application fields, including liquid as well as powder coatings, carbon black is essential for the following coating industry areas:

  • Automotive Coatings
  • Industrial Coatings
  • Decorative Paints
